    Decided to try some old loads I used in my tc. 3 shot at 200, backed it up with some better ones but didnt take a pic. Simple book load of 27.0 gr xterminator, 2.260 oal nosler 40gr and win brass.

    Wish mine shot that well. It is still a work in progress. 12 twist and 14" barrel keeps me shooting the 40gr also.

    Keep at it! Mine just has the hangerbar with a milled out g2 forearm, custom pin thats snug, and headspace shims from bellm. I really wanted my 35 rem barrel to shoot this good, not that it was bad, but this one really suprised me!
